Death Stranding unlock time

Just as confusing as the game itself, unfortunately, the Death Stranding unlock time is difficult to pin down. It appears to be different depending on where you live and what time zone you’re in. This does mean, sadly, that we can’t tell you with 100% certainty when you should be able to play Death Stranding in your time zone. There are a few areas that we do know, however. Be warned, though, it’s messy, with different people claiming different times for the same locations.

As far as we know, however, these are correct Death Stranding release times (they could be inaccurate, mind, so do please check your PS4 to see when exactly you can play it):

  • Australia | November 8, 2019, midnight
  • Brazil | November 7, 2019, 8 PM
  • Saudi Arabia | November 8, 2019, 8 AM
  • UK, GMT | November 8, 2019, 3 AM
  • USA, PT | November 7, 2019, 9 PM PT
  • USA, ET | November 8, 2019, midnight (although this tweet suggests it could be 11 AM November 8 ET)

Don’t take the above times as definite. As of writing, there has been no official word on the Death Stranding unlock time. We’ve tried our best to gather as much info as possible from sources such as Twitter and Reddit, but, again, different people are claiming different release times for the same locations.

We’d recommend checking your PS4 to see exactly when Death Stranding will be available for you to play. Simply find its icon on your PS4 home-screen and it should tell you when the game unlocks. Thankfully, you should be able to preload the game so that it’s ready to go for whenever it unlocks.
